Confronting natural disasters is a way of life in Malawi. The resilience and generosity of its people are humbling. With buildings destroyed, roads impassable, and food stocks ruined, in the aftermath of Cyclone Freddy, some of the Foundation’s work had to be suspended.
Through the generosity of local church groups, it is now up and running again. Gifts of soya flour and cooking utensils mean the Foundation has been able to resume its feeding programme, although transporting everything remains a challenge.
The Friends of JCT in the UK continue to do what we can, but we need more. With crops ruined, food prices have shot up. Food shortages and hunger are widespread. Beyond the need for food itself, feeding shelters need to be rebuilt and damaged boreholes re-dug to prevent another outbreak of Cholera. Will you help?
